After I saw how sweet Elizabeth's daughter looked in Cascade (free pattern here), I knew I wanted to knit this cardigan myself. So many of my knitting projects lately have been top-down raglans. I'm used to their construction, and they almost always yield a great result.
This pattern (Ravelry details here) was just enough of what I knew, and just enough experimentation to be fast and satisfying. The yarn, Tosh Vintage, was so luxurious I imagine I'll knit with it again.
It's for you-know-who, but since I made the 12 month size, it'll be over a year before she can wear it. Nevermind, something (else) to look forward to!
